Aaron wrote a really neat clip that will index a file. It will be in
the next newsletter. We've been working on it & came up with another
clip that will let you take something like:
etc for a text database | index on Name or Comments or whatever |
wizard shows list of entries | select & access. The one we've got
now also saves the list info to a file so you don't have to index
all the time BUT the wizard that shows you the saved info includes
the file & that makes it too long | drag wizard area so you can
work with it | select your list - it calls the referenced file &
displays the index where you expand the box again if there are
long entries | access your record | repeat wizard | drag some more
& on & on. Makes a great clip a big hassle!
By the way, it's the width that you have to expand. Height just gives
you a blank area below the wizard list. With 2 long entries, I see 1/2
of the first one with a little tiny scroll bar on the right which barely
allows enough room to click but when I can manage to scroll down, all I
get is half of a blank line so there's no way to get to #2 in the list
without expanding the wizard width. Once I get beyond 2 entries, I see
the first entry & most of the 2nd & can scroll to select any of them.
It's usable once you get to that point & I could do a work-around to chop
my entries so it would display better but presumably, I'm not the only
one who might pick up large text items from a file & try to put them into
